the colour project

The idea for The Colourful People project evolved after appreciating how unique and unusual this Melbourne based sub-culture is compared to the rest of the world. I had not seen anything like this before and felt driven to capture these amazing people and share their artistic creativity with the rest of the world. It is beautiful to see how each artist uses patterns and massive amounts of colour to express themselves, something that I feel is lacking from the modern world. 

Over the last few years, I have photographed a selection of these talented beings. I want to understand why they are who they are, where their inspiration comes from, how they got started and what drives them every day to create amazing work. Through this process, I have discovered that they are all connected, which is even more exciting. 

This is a project that I have been working on for some time and I am super excited to finally be sharing it with you all. I will reveal one magical artist per week. I hope that you are inspired by these amazingly creative people as I have been. Let their colour and their sparkle bring light to your day :)

If you are curious to get involved, to let me capture and inspire the world with your unique creativity and personality, feel free to get in touch.
